Very nicely made beer. The plum is perfect, the tart is medium, the brett funk is low. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Commons portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (330 ml) at home. From Kevin pr Thomas(?) I think, thanks! Slightly hazy orangey golden with a medium white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is soft and features a nice mix of plums, pinot noir winey and perfumey notes, herbal brettanomyces and mild spiciness. Taste is also soft with no acidity at all, nice brett features, very mild plum presence, winey/perfumey pinot noir notes and floral presence. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy and ample mouthfeel. Herbal brettanomyces and gentle fruitiness finish. This is very soft but not unidimensional and it has a great drinkability. Very good and quite un-american!

Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle at home after flying back from Cincinnati. Hazy gold with lots of head that eventually recedes. Some lacing. Aroma out the gate is delicious fruity brett funk. Can’t pick out plums specifically, but definitely some kind of fruit hanging out there. Floral sweetened cereal as well. Taste/mouthfeel don’t live up to the nose. Light initial sweetness, dry finish, body feels thin/hollow. Overall: reasonably refreshing, but didn’t deliver on the promise of the aroma.

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a hazy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, oak, plum skin, cream. Thin mouth, tart plum, funky, brett, oak, light tartness, very good.

callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Lightly hazy orange-red body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Light plum, musty brett, light stonefruit, mineral water, and gentle vinous and woody notes. Medium bodied with zippy carbonation, mild acidity, semi-dry throughout, and refreshing finish.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/27/15] Draught at The Commons Brewery in Portland. Cloudy reddish color. Lovely bretty aroma with barnyard, oak, some wine, and fruits (plum as well). Rather dry flavor, slightly sourish, with barnyard, fruitiness and a vinous note. Medium-bodied.

Crisp but dark, tart and sour notes really dominate some fruitiness but not sweet.

Tap @ The Commons... Poured murky, gray-ish pink with a thin, bubbly head. Nose had nice fruit with brett funk. Nice tasting fruit here. Crisp, refreshing, fruit juice sweetness with added brett to dry it out and a funky depth. I wouldn’t say this was too sour or anything. Was more on the barnyard side with a good plum/dark fruit character.
